    Default Site Restored!

    The site has been restored from backup due to a pretty significant server mishap. The data was restored the evening of the 27th of March, and the data ends on the 25th of March at about 5am EST. I apologize for the inconvenience. Any members registered during that time will need to re-register, any content posted during that time will need to be reposted.

    Damage control is currently being handled, and some features will still be disabled until they can be worked out. Please be patient.

    Again, I am so sorry for this inconvenience. I hope to be back to normal very soon.

    I had this moment of sheer, mind-numbing terror this morning when I saw that 'unclaimed domain' thingy page.

    Thanks for getting us back up and running!

    Glad to hear its running faster...there's been a lot of optimizations...unfortunately, there's still some broken stuff too. Still working on getting search working.

    Hallelujah! Search is now working!!! If you notice any other problems, please let me know. I'm still working on improving the image uploads processing back to imagemagick...So thumbnails may not be the best until that's done. Also larger images may be rejected or have problems. Getting there.

    I noticed something while updating Png... before the server restoration, the transparent textures were kept transparent, but on the map posted since the site's return, it seems like this transparent area is turned into solid white...

    This can be see in this post, for example, the two middle pictures I re-uploaded, while the others were updated previously.

    I Not that big a deal, but something I noticed...

    That is the ImageMagick issue. Once we are switched to that png transparency will be respected.

    Just got a note that Imagemagick has been fixed. Turns out it was broken for a lot of other dedicated server users. It's working now...here's a scroll with transparency.
